It is very easy to pretend that generous people just have pity on certain groups of people, and they like lording what they have over others, but this is extremely short-sighted and generally wrong. Generosity often has very little to do with helping others and has a lot to do with a person's state of mind and how they think about what they do and what they think about other people. It is pointless to presume one person's quality of life should be the exact same as another person's quality of life since the quality of life is largely subjective. However, being able to ask a person what they need and help them achieve it is a generous thing and is commendable.
Lewis Barbe is an extremely generous person and enjoys being able to give some of his hard-earned experience when it will help others.
